New YouTube Video: Multi-touch Gamepad Piloting AR Drone
The Robotics Lab recently posted a new video of an AR Drone being driven by a Microsoft Surface, running our very own DREAM (Dynamically Resizing Ergonomic and Multi-touch) controller. Check it out here: www.youtube.com/watch
This AR Drone is flown using the Dynamically Resizing Ergonomic and Multi-touch (DREAM) controller on the Microsoft Surface. The DREAM controller spawns when one or both hands are placed down, conforming to your hand size and position. There is full analog control with both hands for flight movement, as well as buttons to take off and land. The interface uses the Parrot AR Drone SDK to communicate with the AR Drone over ad-hoc WiFi.
